Amazing shoe but wearing out after 4 runs This is my 4th Merrell model from the barefoot lineup. I've had the trail glove and 2 of the bare access models prior to ordering the flex. I ordered a size 12 which has fit just right or a bit snug in the other models. The flex was way too big. I sold them to a friend and ordered the 11.5 which is good but still on the big side. The shoe feels amazing and was great for the first 4 runs until I noticed the fabric is already worn through at the upper flex points by the ball of my foot. This is very surprising given that I have worn the tread off my past models before the uppers have worn through. Very disappointing and unfortunate given that there aren't many options for a shoe in this category.

Nice looking but way oversized It is a shop looking product needs to be size fitted correctly I think that it will do very well as long as the sneaker fits the foot I believe that Merrill will fix this problem I make the next customer more satisfied than me

finally... a indoor GYM shoe I've been a avid Merrell customer for years... having spent 30 yrs in commercial kitchens wearing true clogs and or birki's.. my feet will only tolerate a wide toe box ...which lead me to Merrell in my off hours ... having worn many many modes of Merrell's.. phoenix bluff, Moab FST, all out blaze, aero/flex and hiker models ...to name a few . I always had to suffer and bear thru the aggressive tread pattern and use the shoe's for indoor gym activities... averaging 30 miles per week on the "Dreadmill", and a rotational weight lifting program... 7dys a week for over 2 years... actually reversed my diabetes... and found my 2nd wind @ 48 .... well after trying Every model that seemed to fit my needs... and reluctantly not finding my "perfect fit"... I finally tried this new model... and WOW.. FINALLY a gym shoe with a simple indoor friendly tread pattern, that is light, and flexible in ever sense of the word... the shoe locks down in the heel, ,supports the arch, just high enough to notice, and widens in to a ample toe box, that allows for sum good toe spread... after the initial week long break in period.... and swapping out the laces for a elastic speed lace setup, with a better lacing to fit my foot... the shoe has become my Daily wear and Tear... love the thing so much I just ordered a 2nd pair

Excellent running shoe Impressed! They have just the right amount of cushion and have great arch support. Nice, wide toe box. I ordered a 1/2 size smaller and they fit perfect. My first run in them was 3 road miles and I thought they were super comfortable. Second run was 10 road miles and they were great. I don't even feel like they had to be broken in. They were just ready to go. They look awesome, too.👌🏼

No need to break in The Merrell Flex automatically feels like a pair of shoes that you've had for at least 2 months and done multiple runs in. It's very comfortable and allows plenty of air flow for your feet to breathe.
